Here is the information for Canadian Pet Food Consumers to ask government authorities to regulate pet food during upcoming Town Hall meetings. This was just received, and (sorry) deadline to register is tomorrow.
The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) regulates human food and livestock feed, but it does not regulate pet food. Canada is in the process of updating livestock feed regulations and is providing five Town Hall meetings for comment across Canada. For pet food consumers in Canada who wish to provide their government with comments on the lack of oversight of pet foods manufactured in Canada, below is the information on these Town Hall meetings.
First, below is the invitation received from CFIA with location information of each Town Hall meeting:
And below is the RSVP that must be provided back to CFIA deadline 1/27/16:
You can print the RSVP document and provide as an email attachment back to the contact listed on the form, or simply call the phone number provided to register yourself.
If any Canadian pet food consumer attends one of these meetings, please let me know what CFIA officials tell you.
Good luck! Fingers crossed! Please remind CFIA that Canadian pet food consumers are paying sales tax on each purchase of a pet food or treat – they deserve a regulatory return for that tax.
Wishing you and your pet(s) the best,
